I've read a lot of threads regarding Garen and how he is OP.. how he isn't OP.. etc.

Question from a noob...

If he isn't OP, why is he always banned in Ranked?

If he is OP, why hasn't Riot nerfed him even more?

1. People don't realize he's not OP/don't want to play against him/can't resist facechecking brush.

2. See 1.

he's one of those strong survivability strong damage characters (focus me and my team will rape you, focus my team and I WILL RAPE YOU) kinda characteres. there are quite a few of them around nowadays, like Olaf, Mordekaiser, and Xin Zhao.

I wouldn't really say they're OPd, but they are very, VERY strong. a badly played one will still suck, just like any other characters. but a evelynn who knows how to operate without stealth can still be a good player. it's the person sitting behind the keyboard, not the pixels on the screen.

Garen deals very little damage past level 10. Stop dying to him during laning.

He is very simple and straight-forward with good power. It is much easier to reach max-potential with Garen than most other champions and the role he plays while doing it is very desirable.

listen, hes an absolute beast. but they weakened his survivability early game so its going to be harder for him to get stacked late game.....

late game Garen isn't much to write home about anyways.

I don't think hes worth a ban..i was watching HotshotGG stream last night and there were a couple games where he wasn't picked or banned, so I think the flavor of the month might be over...


ON TO GALIO!

He is always banned because he is op (not ridiculously so anymore, but he is so easy to play that anyone can do amazing with him).

He is not nerfed more because Riot doesn't wanna pull another overnerf (akin to the ones that largely killed the Shaco playerbase). They are trying to be gradual, the only problem is whether they will stop at the right time.
